Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Saturday said that her alliance with Ajit Jogi’s Janata Congress is focused on winning more seats, so that a stable government is formed in Chhattisgarh. She also took on Bharatiya Janata Party on the Ram Temple issue and said that even if hundreds of those are built, it won’t reap any political benefit to the saffron front.
Addressing an electoral rally in Bilaspur, Mayawati said, “Iss Vidhan Sabha chunaav mein gathbandhan ki poori koshish honi chaiye ki hamare yahan jyaada se jyaada umeedwar jeet kar aayen aur sarkaar ban sake (This Assembly elections, the alliance should focus on winning more seats and form government in the state).”
Attacking BJP-RSS on Ram Temple, she said, “Chunaav ke nazdeek Ram Mandir ko karane ka abhiyaan kuch zada zor pakad raha hai. Iss mamle mein ab yeh log (BJP) UP mein hi nahi balki poore desh mein ek nahi anek Ram mandiron ka nirmaan kyun na karlen toh bhi isse BJP-RSS le logon ko rajneetik labh nahi hone wala hai (With the election coming nearer, the campaign to build Ram Temple is growing immensely. In this matter, even if these people (BJP) build temple in all over the country other than UP, they would not be able to get any political benefit from it).”
Assuring Ajit Jogi to regain the lost respect, Mayawati said, “Mein Ajit Jogi ji (Janta Congress Chhattisgarh) ko vishwaas dilana chahti hun ki jo samman aapko Congress party ke saath nahi mila woh aapko BSP pe saath milkar milega (I assure Ajit Jogi that BSP will give the respect to Jogi ji that Congress never gave).”
It is to be known that Mayawati joined hands with Jogi in Chhattisgarh before the Assembly elections dates were announced. Soon after Chhattisgarh, she also announced that BSP will go solo in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan Assembly elections. The dates for Chhattisgarh elections will will take place on November 12 and 20. On the other hand Rajasthan on December 7 and Madhya Pradesh on November 28.
